Frederic Auguste Bartholdi was commissioned to design the sculpture which was intended to be completed in 1876 to mark the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence. While the French designed and supplied the Statue, Americans were responsible for building the pedestal, as well as assembling the Statue once it arrived in the United States.
